Not all Stargate Atlantis sets being 'trashed'

Phew. Apparently the Solutions blog is on top of this. Alas, i couldn't post till I got home from work.



The Vancouver Sun has a brief article on the tearing down of Stargate’s FX Stage to make way for the new television series Stargate Universe that will start filming in February next year. As the location of the popular Medieval Village Set, this stage has a lot of Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis history tied up in it, and to see it being torn down to be rebuilt is bittersweet.

However, it still sucks that basically all you hear in the press is SGU SGU! Might as well get some cheerleaders to chant it. Hmmm, if "Heroes" keeps going down in the ratings, there may be one unemployed cheerleader! ;)

Got a reply back from the author of the article who, oddly enough, couldn't answer my question of 'are all the sets being destroyed?' Weird...

Joe Mallozzi just said on his blog....

One of the great things about doing this daily blog is that it affords me the opportunity to head off rumors and fan concerns before. Today, for example, I see many a panicked reaction to a recent Vancouver Sun article that states: “Heavy machines are smashing the Stargate Atlantis TV series’ set in Bridge Studios’ 40,000-square-foot effects stage.” Well - yes, it’s true and, no, it’s not a big deal. We’re not talking about Stage 2 (that houses the wraith hive/facilities) or stage 3 (that houses the Daedalus/Apollo) or, more importantly, stage 6 (where the Atlantis gate room, control room, infirmary, Woolsey’s office, and various corridors are located). We’re talking about the FX Stage, the location of the (well played-out) village set, cave sets, catacombs, and one of our cafeteria views. No big loss. Hell, Stage 5 (which holds the SGC gate room, control room, briefing room, and several corridors) is still up despite the fact that SG-1 was cancelled two years ago! So, fear not. The movie will not be take place entirely on some forested planet.
